|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on May 31, 2020 at 3:00 pm

All performance dates for this event have been CANCELED!

Egotistical leading man, director, and producer Fred Graham is reunited with his ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi, when the two are forced to play opposite one another in a new production of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. Alongside their bickering, the show’s supporting actress, Lois Lane and gambling boyfriend Bill, fall into the clutches of local gangsters. Throw in several of cases of mistaken identity, the mob, comedic routines into the mix and a fabulous score by Cole Porter and you get Kiss Me, Kate — a dazzling Broadway classic that earned the very first Tony award for Best Musical. Songs include “Another Opening, Another Show”, “Brush Up Your Shakespeare”, “From This Moment On”. Younger performers will be featured in an original “curtain-raiser” by Michael Thomas!
